Frequently Asked Questions
"Eyelid Surgery"

1. What makes a good candidate for Eyelid surgery?

First, a optimal past health history. Surgery can be completed under general or local anesthesia.

Second, the usual components that can be addressed are excess skin and baggy appearing eyelids.

The “bags” are a result of the normal periorbital fat protruding and resultant stretching of the skin.

I suggest you a a appointment with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.


2. Will Eyelid surgery remove wrinkles around my eyes?


The answer depends where the wrinkles are specifically located.

The options are:

  1. Neuromodulators: Botox or Dysport
  2. Skin tightening: Skin tighenting using ELOS radio frequency treatments, using CO2RE carbon dioxide or Thermi tight.
  3. With excess skin or bags: Blepharorplasty

Please make a appointment or send some photos.  


3. Are there any visible scars left from Eye surgery?

Thank you for this question.

Eyelid surgery known as Blepharorplasty has some of the  best and hidden scars  of any procedure we perform on the body.

The reason being is that the scars are placed in the upper lid crease thus almost invisable while the eye is open. Port lower eyelid rejuvenation the incisions are  made just below the lower lid eyelash or the incision is made inside the lower lid without any visible external scars.

I hope you find this information helpful and I suggest you make a personal consultation.
